Hi 11bink11.

Another good way is, if you are running SybotSD, go to Tools/Startup, and you will have a list of all your startup items which can be unchecked there. Just be careful you don't stop anything which may be required. Do a little research on unknown items.

When I boot up, the System32 Folder and contents appear on screen. Just started doing this

I have tried

1. c:\ documents \ all users\startmenu\programs\startup

This does not show the above

2. msconfig\ startup

This has about 40 items checked, none of which identifies as system 32. It may be there but I am not identifying it

Can someone help me get rid of this

Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Ian12 and welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

It is usually better to start your own thread to deal with your issue, but I might have an answer for you, or at least a place to start.

There is an article in Microsoft's Knowledge Base about this. You can read it by clicking HERE.
